The Polish Copper Foundation


One of the pillars of Corporate Social Responsibility in KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. is its charitable work performed through the Polish Copper Foundation founded in 2003, a public benefit organisation. The idea to establish the Foundation emerged from the social policy of KGHM. Its creation was a natural extension of the charitable and socially-oriented activities of the Company, which since the very inception supported a variety of local and national projects in Lower Silesia.


Thanks to a structured system of funding social causes and a professional approach to allocation and settlement of donations, the Foundation can afford to be engaged in numerous activities in the sphere of health protection and promotion; science; education and upbringing of children; heritage and recreational tourism for children and young people; as well as numerous actions undertaken in response to crisis situations, such as aid to victims of natural disasters.


In 2012, the Polish Copper Foundation offered 1 894 cash grants totalling over PLN 19 m, of which more than PLN 15 m was donated to various institutions for the implementation of 334 projects and the remaining PLN 4 m was spent on 1560 cash donations to individual beneficiaries.
